Cooking takoyaki in Osaka, Japan
Osaka Food Tour
If you want to eat well in Japan, Osaka is a great destination. Japan’s third largest city might not be the most conventionally attractive but this buzzing and bustling place has a charm all of its own. And with the unofficial slogan being kuidaore - eat until you drop – it’s a foodie’s paradise.
On this evening tour you’ll visit the city’s liveliest food-centered area where you’ll wander packed streets and hidden alleyways in search of the best dishes in town. Along the way you’ll try a variety of local foods including kushikatsu, - deep fried meat and vegetable skewers. You’ll also get a chance to try the city’s famous and ubiquitous takoyaki, these are balls of octopus! You’ll enjoy one drink which is included in the price of your ticket - why not opt for a cool draft beer or a delicious glass of rice wine?
Next up your local guide will take to any number of other establishments depending on your preferences. Why not tuck into a steaming bowl of sukiyaki (Japanese beef hotpot) or slurp up some traditional ramen noodles? Once the evening tour ends your guide can either take you back to your hotel or show you where else to head – including the best izakaya bars – if you’d rather stay up and soak up the city’s nighttime atmosphere.
